The other day I heard someone say that late March-early April is a prime time for surfin’ off the Texas coast. Didn’t know the Gulf of Mexico had any decent waves to speak of, in fact although I grew up along the upper Gulf Coast I don’t know a thing about surfing. Would that make me a ho-dad?
Well, I do know this: the best surf music came out in the early 1960s. So while our wave-riding bros are down in Galveston and Corpus waiting to hang ten on the right wave, here are some surfin’ (and car ridin’ down to the beach) tunes. The final song is a Beach Boys ringer from their final (terrible) album, tossed in here just as a goofy foot kinda thing. Or something.
MP3: “Malibu” by Bruce Johnston (pre-Beach Boys)
MP3: “Jersey Channel Islands Part 7” by Bruce Johnston (still pre-Beach Boys)
